Birds in Townsville suburbs

I noticed a lot of birds moving around when I walked outside late on Thursday afternoon. One camera and forty minutes later I had photos of 15 species without going any further than our nature strip.

That’s almost half of the number of species we have seen from this suburban (Mundingburra) location since we moved here and includes most of our common residents and visitors, so it has become an opportunity to update and extend the list I began here two years ago.

Photos on this page are from Thursday and can be seen at full size in the lightbox. Species links will take you to photos (and sometimes descriptions) elsewhere on Green Path.
